7:03 am
toyota. let's go places! welcome to "cbs this morning." millions of americans from the carolinas to massachusetts are digging out from the big storm. a massive weekend blizzard buried many regions and mounds of snow. at least 29 people died in the storm. many from shoveling. at least five states reported getting at least 30 inches of snow. cities shut down. several areas declared states of emergency. >> high tides from the storm caused record coastal flooding in new jersey and crews at airports are still working to clear runways. more than 1,400 flights are already cancelled today. we are correspondents covering the impact of the storm and we begin with kris van cleave in washington where the government is shut down and two feet of snow fell there. >> reporter: good morning. the region is engaged in a massive snow removal effort.
7:04 am
operation that is turning the parking lots at the old rfk stadium in washington into a mountain of snow. the region remains hobbled in the aftermath of this massive storm. so much snow! much of the nation's capital will remain frozen, shut down, as washington, d.c. works to dig itself out from an epic winter storm. schools are closed mayor is asking people to stay home. you can see why. there is no way a car could drive through side streets like this. and the main roads are often full of pedestrians avoiding iced-over sidewalks. >> while we have made some more to do. >> reporter: d.c.'s metro is back open, but only with limited service. amtrak is running modified service in the northeast. half. plows tried, but couldn't keep up as the district and surrounding region turned wintry white. the national guard was activated
7:05 am
additional pieces of snow removal equipment. raymond tullson volunteered to help to dig out the elder i didn't and the city suggested two of their neighbors, he did their home and eight more. >> the senior citizens can't get out here and walk in the snow like this. >> reporter: the suburbs got it worse. some have more than three feet of snow on the ground. huge mounds had to be cleared from maryland's interstates. and at washington's airports, it's been an around-the-clock effort, trying to get the runways back open for flights monday morning. nationally, more than 12,000 flights and counting have been cancelled. >> people should examine larger than usual crowds at both of our airports and expect delays. the amount of snowfall affecting so many airports across the country it's going to take a while for the air system to get back on track. >> reporter: hundreds are gathering what is a tradition in washington. snowballs start.
7:06 am
there is some controversy here in d.c. about how much snow actually fell. the national weather service today is launching an internal investigation after reports that the official snow total was incorrect, that it was underestimating the amount of snow that fell. at the airport where it's recorded, 17.8 inches, the national weather service says, but the nearby national zoo got 22.4. one other note on the airports. they are hoping to be somewhat close to 100% operation by the end of the day. >> let's just say, kris, a lot of snow fell in washington, d.c. thank you very much. off by a couple of inches but thank you very much. many commuters in the new york city area are digging out their cars this morning. the snowfall set a single-day record in sfral central park, close to 27 inches. five people in new york state died from shoveling. penn station was packed after train travel resumed. the long island railroad started

david begnaud is in queens where many people are still snowed in after nearly three feet fell there. david, good morning. >> reporter: gayle, good morning. you say washington, d.c. got a lot? nearly three feet in queens. some 2 million people live here. cars are stuck. i just saw a woman coming, walking down the street cursing because she could barely get out of her home. the city is bragging about the job they did in other parts, but here in queens, residents feel like they were forgotten. tried to get to work and school this morning. almost a nonevent! it is a misery still this morning. it might be beautiful, but there are plenty of people under white. >> thank you, man. >> reporter: new york city is surging back to life after getting hammered by its second biggest snowstorm on record. >> we survived and then some. >> reporter: the system hit much harder than first expected. nearly 27 inches fell in just 24 hours.
7:08 am
helicopter showing parts of the big apple white. but by sunday, all major roads were cleared. broadway had reopened and most buses and trains were back in service. new york city mayor bill de blasio called it a cautionary tale. >> an example to us to the fact we have to be prepared for storms that move very fast, that evolve very rapidly. >> reporter: in queens, where some 850 plows were deployed, side streets are still buried this morning. >> what about us? you know? we stuck here. we are all wondering what happened to the sanitation department. why didn't it care about these blocks. >> reporter: others are struggling to dig their cars out. that's if they can even find them! kelly langer spent hours helping free her neighbor's vehicle. >> i wish it was summer right now! i don't really like it. i don't want to see it again! >> david begnaud in queens, new york. communities along the southern new jersey coast this morning are cleaning up from
7:09 am
the storm surge put several towns under water and pushed boats onto the streets. crests topping nine feet forced evacuations. nearly 100,000 people lost power. we will take you to one neighborhood that is still under water coming up. the iowa caucuses are one week from tonight. the latest cbs news battleground tracker poll shows donald trump is back in the lead there. the survey finds trump is five points ahead of ted cruz who led in the same poll just a months ago. our tracker shows trump 18-point lead with cruz and rubio and kasich fighting for second place. major garrett is in washington to break down the iowa campaign. >> reporter: good morning. the polls, if they are right, donald trump and ted cruz now command nearly 75% of the iowa caucus vote. but volatility remains one-third of caucus go-ers said they might change their minds and includes 25% of trump's supporters. donald trump stormed across iowa
7:10 am
compliment. >> i have the most loyal people. did you ever see that? where i could stand in the middle of fifth avenue and shoot somebody and i wouldn't lose any voters. okay? just, like, incredible. >> reporter: not exactly the new york values everyone has been talking about. but trump supporters continue to show up in droves as he stumped with six-term iowa republican senator charles grassley. it wasn't an endorsement, but still a blow to senate colleague ted cruz. the cruz campaign took aim at trump on another front, the embrace of government power to seize private property. >> i think eminent domain is wonderful. >> it made him rich. >> reporter: the essence of the campaign's new ad that trump tried to bulldoze the home of an elderly woman to pave the way for a casino is parking lot. >> it's not true. eminent domain is a positive thing not a negative thing.
7:11 am
trump's recent conversion to conservatism. >> if they say the only problem it needs to be bigger, is there any chance on earth that individual would actually stand up to the cronyism and cartel in washington? >> reporter: a message amplified by cruz's newest supporters beck. >> if donald trump wins, it's going to be a snowball to hell. >> reporter: despite the hype and attacks, trump made this admission on cbs' "face the nation." >> yeah. if he got the nomination and if everything was fine, i would vote for ted cruz. you know, i'd vote for ted cruz. >> you would vote for him? >> i was putting that in relationship to his place of business. >> reporter: the "des moines register" looked past trump and cruz and endorsed marco rubio with the candidate who could, quote, chart a new direction for the gop. it should be noted the "register" has guessed the nominee correctly last four republican caucus endorsements.
7:12 am
our battleground tracker in iowa finds the democrats are in a much tighter race. bernie sanders leads hillary clinton by one point. 47 to 46%. in new hampshire, the senator from neighboring vermont holds 19-point lead. >> nancy cordes is covering the democratic campaign. she is in washington, along with "face the nation" moderator and cbs news political director john dickerson. president obama doing an interview with politico's glenn thrush. here is a segment from that interview. >> i think hillary came in with the -- both privilege and burden -- of being perceived as the front-runner. and, you know, you're always looking at the bright, shiny object that people don't -- haven't seen before. that is a disadvantage to her. >> interesting. because he was a bright, shiny object in 2008.
7:13 am
because he is very popular there, john. >> yeah. i'm sorry. was he talking about the 2008 race or was he talking about this race? as you point out, he was the bright, shiny object. one of the fascinating things is in 2008, hillary clinton said all of this hope and change is all very nice, but we need to think about the practical realities of governing and you need somebody in there that knows how to make things work and obama forces used that against her and said she was too bound by washington. now the former bright, shiny object in the oval office making the hillary case saying, yes, bernie sanders is getting this enthusiasm because he is new but you have to walk and chew gum as president and practical realities you have to keep in mind. it's a fantastic kind of full circular happening in the democratic party. >> nancy, you heard senator sanders acknowledge, i think what many people know, is that the reason people are responding to this campaign is because they are angry out there. but in iowa, you've been there so often.
7:14 am
who has the better ground game? >> that is one thing that is so difficult to measure, norah, because both campaigns will throw a whole bunch of statistics at you about how strong their ground game is. they will say we have this many paid staffers and volunteers and knocking on this many doors and making this many phone calls before the iowa caucuses but they can spin the numbers any way they want. the only way to test how effective their ground game is is on caucus night when we see what the final numbers show. what we do know is that hillary clinton's campaign has been at this longer than the sanders' campaign. they have not just the past year of experience but their experience from eight years ago to work on. >> so the story bubbled up over the weekend that former new york mayor mike bloomberg is thinking about getting in the race. he is going to wait and see what happens as a progressive. whose campaign stands to lose in?
7:15 am
>> well, i think it's hard to say. we don't really know. i think in the end of the day when it comes down to electoral votes, i think he actually hurts the republicans more. they start with fewer electoral votes in their column. but that is such a long way away. so i don't know. >> it really depends on whether republicans say i just can't vote for trump, i need to go for someone like michael bloomberg, another new york billionaire? or if he ends up taking votes away from, say, a bernie sanders as a democratic nominee. >> they also were saying that if, in fact, hillary clinton is the nominee, he is less likely >> correct. >> right. i think a lot of less likely. reality a long way away. get on the ballot. >> thank you, both. our debate dream team together. seven people are recovering from injuries this morning after their americanairlines flight hit severe turbulence. flight 206 took off sunday from
7:16 am
it made an emergency landing in newfoundland, canada. three flight attendants and four passengers were taken to the hospital. >> the plane actually dropped, you know -- >> rolled on its side and everything went flying and people and yeah, it was pretty intense. >> it hit like a big dip. and that is some flight attendants were, you know, without seat belts and hurt themselves. >> i was very thankful. you know, you say your prayers and then you come here. it was answered. >> the other passengers are journey today. the matchup for super bowl 50 is carolina against denver. peyton manning and the broncos held on in the final seconds to beat new england 20-18. cam newton and the panthers won the nfc title in a blowout. they beat arizona 49-15. james brown of "cbs sports" is in denver where he watched sunday's afc title game. j.b., good morning. >> good morning, charlie. it was an outstanding matchup,
7:17 am
to sum it up, what matchup. football fans may well have seen the last matchup between tom brady and peyton manning but as you mentioned about carolina, there is a star there in cam newton who is shining very brightly. >> here is brady. rolling out. rolling! and throwing! it's tipped in the air! and it's intercepted! >> this may have been peyton manning's most satisfying victory in a long and storied nfl career. not because he beat tom brady and the patriots team that always seems to have his number, but because the 39-year-old manning doesn't always beat teams with his arm any more. >> can you believe it? he has got a first down! >> he beats them with his experience. >> look at this. >> patriots star quarterback tom brady, who always seems to thrive under the brightest of lights, was harassed by a stifling denver defense all afternoon. >> he is taken down. >> this will be manning's fourth super bowl appearance and he is now the oldest quarterback to lead a team to the big game in
7:18 am
>> to be going to our second super bowl in four year is very special and also an effort by our entire team. what an incredible effort by the patriots for us to beat that team today, very special win. >> he is in for the touchdown! >> but football is a young man's game and the carolina panthers may have the best young quarterback in the national football league. >> newton steps into it. got brown! wide open! >> 26 yeverled cam newton and his carolina panthers dismantled the arizona cardinals in the nfc championship game by 34 points and setting up a super bowl showdown between signal callers who are a generation apart. peyton manning is 13 years newton's senior. the largest age difference between super bowl starting quarterbacks in nfl history. >> i don't know who we are playing yet. but we will be ready to go in two weeks. >> >> you're playing denver and peyton manning. did you ever think in a super bowl you would oppose him?
7:19 am
we will live in the moment now and we will be excited. >> excitement certainly is the operative word. two quarterbacks who were the first overall draft choice in both manning and, of course, cam newton facing each other. but this has all of the potential for an outstanding super bowl matchup. hey, look. although i know i'm throwing it back to gayle, gayle, i did hear on friday that norah o'donnell wants to be in the booth with jim nantz and phil simms. look. she can come join the pregame show. gayle, good to talk to you. >> your sources are very reliable. i e-mailed norah after the game do we need to send a paramedic to your house after the game? so much to discuss. j.b., thanks. >> looking forward to it. >> us too. police in california are hunting three dangerous

7:39 am
personal care products like these razors, and toys like this scooter. research shows that women paid more than men for similar products, 42% of the time. so what is this phenomenon of male/female pricing? >> well, gender-based pricing has been around as a phenomenon or not for many years. >> reporter: todd marks for consumer reports has been researching this issue for years. >> you don't realize how badly you're getting ripped off or being taken advantage of as a woman because you become so conditioned to pay more. >> reporter: it's these pressers used after clothing is dry
7:40 am
they are designed for men. but owner of this cleaner ken soffy says it's not a justification. >> having a shirt laundered and machine pressed does not exist for women cuffs. >> just men? >> only for men. >> reporter: because the shirts don't get? >> because of that women are getting penalized that. >> reporter: while no federal law against this practice but it is illegal in new york, miami-dade county and in california. a statewide study found a gender tax costs women $1,351 more animal an annually but no laws to prevent it. >> one of the reasons is it's about the market and there is -- we don't know who is responsible for it. >> reporter: michael cohen is a trade lawyer who says part of the problem is the extra costs
7:41 am
from the get-go. he found that women's clothing, shoes, and gloves often enter the country with a higher import tax than men. one example? men's sneakers were taxed at 8.5%, while women shoes at 10%. >> it might be $5 that you pay that is extra to uncle sam, but by the time it hits the retail and consumer, it could be 10, 12, $13. >> reporter: and cohen found it dates back to at least the mid 1800s when women's hats and gloves were taxed higher. he says, ultimately, will be consumers who hold the key to reform. >> it has to be a market response, a written campaign, vote with your purse or your pen. that is what is going to change it. >> wow. michelle miller with that investigation. >> it's really outrageous. it's not just an added access tax on products that don't exist to men. the legislatures need to take a

8:05 am
it was thrilling to watch yesterday. >> which is a real tribute to the patriots because they are a dynasty in an era of designed parody in the nfl. but, yes, they had a shot. my producer drew was saying but for that missed extra point it could have been a different ball game for sure. >> shows you how extra points make a difference. >> isn't that always the case? searching with the guy with the best rolla idex will know that. >> i'm sitting here at a table with smart and attractive ladies. i'm telling you, i don't blame you, my friend. every day, i get to come here and sit between them so you sit there with your green envy, okay? >> charlie, charlie? okay. i'm too dark to bless charlie so if you're seeing green, that is seeing something. hey, charlie? >> yes, sir. >> i told me in pasadena that you have the greatest job in america. >> i do.
